Automotive glazing components, which include vehicle windshields, side windows, rear windows and sunroofs, are increasingly being fabricated using thermoplastic materials. These components are conventionally composed of glass, but are currently being replaced by plastics owing to environmental regulations that stipulate carbon dioxide emissions reduction, need for low-cost vehicles, and consumer demand for enhanced vehicle reliability and safety. Polyvinyl butyral (PVB) and polycarbonate (PC) resins are increasingly being used for developing laminated glass-plastic composites for use in automotive glazing components.

The High-Tech Materials TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on various materials across industries. Some material technologies include light weight materials, bio–based materials, ceramics, smart materials, fibers, nanomaterials, responsive materials, polymers, woven and non woven materials, polymers and plastics and packaging materials.

The Materials and Coatings cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.

Keywords: Automotive glazing, window coating, plastics, polycarbonate, polyethylene terephthalate, polyvinyl butyral, injection molding, carbon emissions, lightweight, polymers
